The consequences of bullyingReviewed byTheLittleSongbirdVote: 8/10

Have always been a big fan of anime, particularly Studio Ghibli and Miyazaki without restricting myself to just them (some of my favourites are actually without either involved).

Any film dealing with bullying and its consequences deserves to be applauded for the effort. Bullying, often stemming from something that should be a non-issue but turns out to be an easy target for bullies (for examples if your parents disallow you to play a popular video game for obvious reasons, if you have a posh accent, if you listen to and perform classical music, if you have a physical or social disability, false rumours spread about you, if you were a hard-worker rather than somebody who messed about and disrespected substitute teachers) is something that is very much relevant still and has damaging effects, it is an issue that needs to be addressed and acted upon much more than it is. This is coming from somebody who suffered merciless bullying myself in school, for all the above reasons apart from the first (in my case my school did nothing about it too), and nearly a decade on it has damaged my confidence/self-esteem, made me feel worthless and made my already bad anxiety worse despite getting a degree in music and singing regularly.

So as one can probably tell, 'A Silent Voice' really resonated with me on an emotional level. At the same time, it also really made me think and see that there is much more to the issue, the bully, the witnesses and the victim than one would tend to perceive. 'A Silent Voice' also turned out to be a very good film in its own right. It isn't flawless, some of the supporting characters are under-explored and in a few cases inconsistently and one-dimensionally written and some of the story jumps around and doesn't always feel complete.

Despite being over two hours, didn't think it was too long considering the number of characters and their stories. If anything, perhaps 'A Silent Voice' would have been even better as a series which would have solved the problems.

On the other hand, 'A Silent Voice' has an awful amount to recommend. Great isn't a strong enough word to describe the animation. Rich in meticulous background and character detail, atmospheric and ethereal in colour schemes and alive to nuances in its use of settings and character gestures and expressions, it becomes a character of its own and there are some memorable images throughout like towards the end. The music has whimsy, haunting beauty and understatement, while not overbearing the drama and letting it speak when needed. The song is catchy.

The writing is thought-provoking and contemplative, doing it in a way that will make bullying victims and those who bullied alike identify with what is said. A lot of it is remarkably insightful, and even when the film was really resonating with me it taught me a lot about an issue that isn't as black and white as perceived. The story has its issues but has a strong emotional core, with the truly powerful and touching ending leaving me shell-shocked.

Not often does one find themselves rooting for a bully as well as the victim, 'A Silent Voice' is one of those rarities. The voice acting is dynamic.

In summary, not perfect but very well done. 8/10 Bethany Cox

A second chance to fix the past mistake.Reviewed byReno RanganVote: 7/10

This is the next best anime in the recent time after 'Your Name'. Not that you know this director very well, not at the international level. But with a film like this, she's going to be. This is another teen romance. Well, romance is not exactly a word that matches with what this film is about narrative, but there's no other way to describe its theme. It was like before romance, that mean before committing to a relationship and after you had started to like someone while fixing the mistakes made in the past.

It's a high school tale. Before that, it opened with a brief flashback of the elementary school events, where Shoya Ishida bullied a new admission Shoko Nishimiya for her hearing impairment. Soon after that, she'd transferred to another school. Now, a few years later, they meet again in the high school, where Ishida tried to fix what he had done wrong a while ago for her. So a relationship develops, despite people around them does not understand their commitment. At some point, it will be tested, which might lead to uncover their true feeling to one another.

This is surely aimed at the teen audience. Especially, the romance and sentimental parts are intended for the youngsters, but anyone would enjoy it. So, I felt them, but not like I'm still young. Otherwise, I would have said it is a masterpiece. That's only from the story perspective. The sketches and animations were not bad. The film characters were awesome. Each one was very unique and different people pick different characters as their favourite. I liked Yuzuru as I always like tomboyish type roles. But obviously Ishida and Shoko make this film.

?Please don't make such a serious face. And, let me say... I am sorry.?

Smooth animation. Technically comparable with any big names (anime titles). That also means the director is now in the league of the best anime-maker. She's young and I hope she keeps doing more films. As I said many times before, that after Hayao Miyazaki retired from making films, we need more people like this filmmaker to fill that empty space. The film won many awards for its great achievement, as well as box office success in the domestic market. Expecting the rest of the world and anime fans to receive it at the same extent.

It was originally based on the manga of the same name, and a television series was made before this feature anime. As I collect film quotes, the best ones, I was disappointed on that context. There were many emotionally and romantically appealing lines, but not on the moral perception. That does not mean the film lacks the social consciousness. In fact, the film highlights the bullying and its severe consequences. That alone is enough, this is a must see for the school kids.

Surely kids, teens and some youngsters would love it, but as far as the adults, this is not an ideal thematic, yet you can't ignore its artistry and the intention of the film. Sometimes it might help you to like it in the second viewing. Because this is one of those kind. My issue was understanding the Japanese sign language. Besides, the subtitle for that was not much helpful, as it was exactly translated as what the hearing impaired character babbled which is an alternate spelling for every word and sentence.

I had lots of fun watching it, as well as other moods like romantic, touching, annoyance, but overall it leans towards the good side. Just over two hours, it never looked too slow or hurried in the story or the character developments. Could be the best to pick as a date flick or get together with your school friends, particularly opposite sex friends. My final saying is, it is not to be missed for many reasons I've mentioned in this review and the other one is it being an anime, a quality one.


Both an emotional roller coaster of a film and a thought-provoking contemplative experience.Reviewed byjeremyquVote: 8/10

I somehow managed to tear up several times over the course of this movie - something very uncharacteristic of myself. Moreover, despite my eyes moistening this unusual amount of times, I enjoyed this movie immensely. Does that mean this movie is without fault, though? Not at all, hence my lack of a full ten-out-of-ten score.

Before I begin with my review, just a word of warning: the "romance" tag on this movie is a bit misleading. Sure, it's implied throughout the film, but definitely not the main focus. Rather than love and loss, it highlights friendship and forgiveness a lot more. Another thing that should be brought up would be that this is my first review on IMDb. Sorry if there's anything weird with my pacing or structure or grammar... or something like that.

Alright. Now, on to the review!

A big problem which hindered this movie from being a masterpiece would be its plot progression and character development. In truth, this kind of couldn't be helped. As this animation is an adaptation of the manga of the same name, cutting a 7 volume long manga into the span of a 2 hour movie (which is quite long for an animated film) would have to result in the removal of some details.

One of these details that was omitted, as mentioned earlier, was character development. Outside of the main two characters were a whole bunch of side characters. In the manga, all of their stories were told in great detail. However, trying to expand on them in the film proved to be impossible, given its 2 hour time limit. The result was side characters which, although shallow, certainly still bolstered the movie as a whole, but left it with a somewhat incomplete or even slightly confusing story. Something that could have been done to make space for these side characters would be an improvement of the plot progression. There were... a few scenes which I thought could have been cut down or even removed altogether. I'd like to elaborate further but this is a no-spoiler review, after all.

Now that we've gotten the bad stuff out of the way, let's focus on what this movie did great at. The studio behind it - KyoAni - is known for their outstanding animation. In fact, the animation in this film was most likely the best I've ever seen in any anime, except for a certain other Japanese animation film which came out a few months earlier than this one. This movie also possessed some ambitiously creative music which managed to work well - a risk well taken. Combined with a catchy theme song, which was unfortunately only used for the trailer and credits, sound-wise, the film did an excellent job.

Although one or two aspects of the story wasn't completely up to scratch, as explained earlier, a part of it that was done very well was how it was so easy to sympathize or even relate to the problems that the characters in the film were having. And, as shown in the summary, it was an emotional roller coaster. There were parts when the theatre had sounds of giggling, gasps of shock, and the sniffing and blowing of one's noses, which is a rare and impressive feat. Furthermore, although the side characters weren't explored enough, the two main ones most definitely were. A big shout-out that I have to give would be to the voice actor for the girl, Shouko. They did a fantastic job voice acting a deaf person struggling to talk. The other main character, Shouya, had their character elaborated well, to the point where relating to them was a very easy task.

So, all in all, this film, while not perfect, is a very well produced and enjoyable work of art. However, it might not appeal to everyone who watches it - the movie might even be fairly uncomfortable to some, as it addresses a dark, serious but very real problem in Japan (or so I'm told). But, as evidently seen, I'm not one of those people, and this film something that I would definitely recommend. Although, if don't live in Asia, you might have to wait for a few more months before you'll be able to see this film or buy the disc, so please try not to forget about it in the meantime.
